Canonical Releases Snapcraft 2.24 Snap Creator Tool for Ubuntu 16.04 and 16.10

Snapcraft 2.24 arrives approximately two weeks after the 2.23 milestone, and it looks like it’s yet another big release that adds many cool new features, especially those that have been implemented in the 2.19 build of the Snapd Snappy daemon, such as classic confinement support and the ability to build classic Snaps. The pluginhandler component received some attention in Snapcraft 2.24, adding prepare, build, and install scriptlet support, along with support for in-snap libraries instead of using the system ones. Moreover, the get_build_properties() function was implemented in the Maven, Gradle, CMake, WAF, and SCons plugins.
